 I think I understand the confusion.

- on the formal release date, all client and server code will be available, GPL (or other open source license) for download by anyone

Miles, for server code I suggest you something stronger than GPL, as GPL allows someone to modify code an it's own server (as an *unpublished* fork), e.g to allow only a non-free "client"

I strongly suggest Affero-GPLv3 for server code which covers that point.

Good point. One of my goals for the next month or two is to do a thorough review of license options - for precisely reasons like the one you've identified. Thanks!
